MV Celebrity Mercury


MV Celebrity Mercury

MV "Celebrity Mercury" is a "Century" class cruise ship owned and operated by Celebrity Cruises. She was built in 1997 as MV "Mercury" by the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

In the summer of 2006, just prior to the "Mercury"'s planned departure for an Alaska cruise, Seattle-based inspectors from the U.S. Coast Guard arrested the captain of the "Mercury" for intoxication. Celebrity Cruises arranged for a replacement, and fired the original captain.
